Mustang will get a 10-speed transmission

Ford is working on a 10-speed transmission for the Mustang in order to appeal more to people who are fuel economy conscious. Not much news on this other than that. Here I have posted a link to the original story as well.

Quote:
While the company is clearly preparing high-performance variants such as the Shelby GT500 and the GT350, the company is also working on implementing a 10-speed automatic transmission in the future for those more conscious on fuel economy.

Which will be shared with the F150. They've said the F150 will potentially be getting a turbodiesel model. Considering the F150 and the mustang powertrains have always been joined at the hip, I wonder if the turbo diesel is also being evaluated for the Euro Mustang?

A mustang Diesel ? That's what the romans would call a 'contradictio in terminis'. this would put an end to the mustang icon...


Let these drivers buy a Jaguar or Porsche or even Maserati Ghibli diesel...


No thanks

I agree it deosnt fit with the brand, but I also don't think we should rule it out. Ford knows they have next to nothing to lose in europe with the S550, they may have a bigger risk appetitie in europr right now than ever before stateside....

I wouldn't say its easier to sell into, but it will say its a bit easier to play with your positioning in a place where you've never had positioning before...

News from Belgium.


Our new to come government (again) has decided to adjust diesel and euro 95 fuel prices to the same level! Reason : Less pollution, so stop buying diesels...


This wil for sure have some impact on diesel sales...

I guess that makes it a bit of a good thing that the american market didn't go too heavy with diesels
